Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Animals when raised on green pasture can move around and live an all natural life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sun light or fresh air allowing bacteria to develop and affect the livestock. This then causes the livestock being provided with antibiotics which is not best for the livestock.
Since a whole lot of animals eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits are the livestock are able to produce drool which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. Since grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine damage and even death.
